On Sunday, March 10, 2013, at or about 4:45AM a witness stated he and his girlfriend noticed four unknown black males standing outside of the Friendly Bar, located on the corner of Chartres and Marigny Streets. The witness stated that one of the subjects approached him and tried to strike up a conversation. The witness made it clear that he didn't want to talk. While the witness was trying to halt the conversation he noticed the victim walking by. The witness then watched the four suspect follow the unsuspecting the victim.

Moments later the two witnesses observed the four subjects beating the victim on the corner of Chartres and Mandeville Streets with a bottle. They called 911. Police and EMS arrived shortly thereafter. The victim was transported to the hospital where he was treated for numerous lacerations and fractures to his face. The victim is still in intensive care and will require cosmetic surgery. Police learned the victim was still in possession of his cash and cellular phone and the no other property was taken.

A witness was able to help police construct a composite sketch of one of the suspects. He was described as a black male approximately 18-21 years of age with a short afro, approximately 6'00" tall with a thin build wearing a horizontal stripped polo shirt and white pants.

Surveillance cameras captured the subjects speaking to the first witness and then following the victim. It can be viewed on youtube.com at www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfOsFWZGkoc&feature=youtu.be
